Potentially preventable hospitalisations are those that may have been prevented by timely access and appropriate provision of primary health care. Reducing potentially preventable hospitalisations, particularly for patients hospitalised for conditions that may have been able to be managed within the community, can bring significant benefits to the Australian health system.
This interactive tool is designed to allow you to explore and create your own graphs using potentially preventable hospitalisations data for Australian communities, including Primary Health Network (PHN) areas and Local areas (SA3).
